Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh Weddings
Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh weddings always seem to have a mix of the traditional and the modern. Maybe it’s inspired by the space itself which was originally built in Pittsburgh’s gilded age when fortunes and power were amassed by men like Carnegie, Frick, and Mellon. It still maintains the Beaux Arts-style that it had when the law firm of Reed Smith called it their headquarters. When Kimpton took it over several years ago they brought their unique mix of modern, funky, and eclectic elements to the property. The result is one of Pittsburgh’s premier hotels and events venues. Located off of Sixth Ave. between Grant St. and William Penn Way, you’re just a few steps away from Pittsburgh’s vibrant cultural district.
Kimpton Hotels are renowned for their attention to detail and hospitality.
Couples find the spacious suites to be the ideal place for them to get ready for their wedding. What a great idea 😉
Ample natural light and space in the rooms upstairs is something that’s worth toasting.
There’s space for all of your bridesmaids and friends to be with a bride when she gets dressed.
The space between the Sheffield (left) and Sofia (right) Ballrooms is an elegant place for a wedding ceremony. The tall Ionic columns and high ceiling give the space a grand scale while the bank of windows above the Sixth Ave. entrance fill the room with ample natural light.
The Sofia Ballroom has enough seating space for a large ceremony.
Room for a Large or Small Reception
The Sofia Ballroom was the location for this brunch reception. The floor-to-ceiling windows on both walls give the room an airy atmosphere during the day:
The space between the ballrooms is also a wonderful space for a cocktail hour. There’s plenty of room for an escort table.
The Sheffield Ballroom is the larger of the two rooms on the main floor and can seat up to 240 guests for a wedding reception.
Dining by candlelight after the lights are turned down gives the large room an intimate feel.
A golden charger with a place card and a wedding favor makes a very inviting space for wedding guests.
Spots for the Perfect Portrait
The rooftop patio is a wonderful place for portraits. Skyscrapers provide the backdrop for this spot high above the busy streets below.
It looks great at night, too.
There are plenty of places inside for portraits. There isn’t a dull space in the entire building, whether it’s just the couple in the photographs.
Or the entire wedding party.
Dance the Night Away
This couple had their reception dinner in the Sheffield Ballroom and dancing in the Sofia Ballroom. The big doors in both rooms allow guests to flow from room to room. So whether they’re hitting the dance floor or relaxing for a conversation there’s a space for everyone.
There’s plenty of room for a band.
And for that one groomsman to show off his signature dance move.
Dancing burns between 350 – 450 calories per hour. Which is a perfect excuse to have a tater tot bar. As if anyone needs an excuse to have a tater tot bar 🙂
The Sheffield Ballroom has a lot of space for dancing as well.
So if you’re looking for a place where you can let go of all of your wedding planning worries and just concentrate on having a great time the Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh is it.
